Sorry Texie, but you had this coming...
« on: April 19, 2021, 02:28:06 PM »
 I know I should have posted this under your self-righteous screed about "double standards," but it's just too satisfying to rub your face in how horrendously wrong you are (not that you'll ever learn):


"Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,"tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican. "If Speaker Pelosi doesn't act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week."

Yes, it is more than a little rich for Republicans to express outrage about incitement given that former President Donald Trump quite clearly incited the crowd at the January 6 "Stop the Steal" rally -- which led directly to the violent insurrection at the US Capitol. And because almost 150 House Republicans voted to oppose the Electoral College results after that riot. And many of whom -- Mo Brooks, Jim Jordan, etc. -- continue to insist, contra allavailable evidence, that Trump was cheated out of the election. And several of whom circulated a flier last week promoting the creation of the "America First" caucus that promised, among other things to foster "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions." (The caucus has apparently been scrapped.)

Yes, it's beyond ridiculous for Republicans to display selective outrage about Waters when they spent the last four years not just ignoring but enabling Trump's conduct -- much of which was aimed at dividing the country along on racial, ethnic and gender lines.
But simply because that is undeniably true doesn't mean that Democrats -- especially Democratic elected officials like Waters -- should have carte blanche to say and do whatever they want. For all of the people making the "what about Republicans!!!" argument, remember this: You can only claim the moral high ground if you don't get down in the dirt yourself.

Republicans are wrong for aiding and abetting Trump. Period. Waters is wrong for encouraging confrontation and violence in a situation that requires the exact opposite of our leaders. Period.

Maxine's rhetoric was 100x more confrontational than anything Trump actually said.

I'm always amazed at how little Fuzz knows regarding real news instead of the news being spoon fed by the MSM.
Trump did not incite the Jan riot in DC. The rioters had already marched to the capitol before trump even arrived , much less spoke.
The riot was pre-planned without Trump's knowledge. Just another of a long line of fake news that the naive and uninformed have fallen for.

I don't think even Fuzz is this clueless......my guess is just Fuzz's weak attempt at "click bait"

Not surprising, really.  It takes a while for the truth to catch up.  Lies and conspiracy theories typically get started on the left.

Hard to decide which of you to ridicule - none of you got the point of the OP.  Texie is constantly crowing about how the MSM, CNN in particular, won't criticize Democrats or hold them accountable.  I post examples all the time, but this one earned its own thread because Texie posted it directly to me about Maxine's recent comments.  Of course, CNN promptly made a fool of him:

Waters is wrong for encouraging confrontation and violence in a situation that requires the exact opposite of our leaders. Period.


Unfortunately, the author mentioned Trump's similar offenses so readers wouldn't be consumed with "whataboutisms" regarding Trump, and that threw you all into a tizzy.

When 75% of Fuzz's post is old anti Republican and anti Trump rhetoric and one lone paragraph scolding Waters its not difficult to understand that Fuzz just couldn't resist the temptation to scratch his TDS itch .
After discovering his Trump bashing topic is not only flawed but grossly wrong...he's now up to his old tricks.........CYOA

I would have no problem with Waters being impeached and removed from office for her remarks.  But then again, I believe in holding ALL people accountable, not just Democrats.

Well that pretty much rings hollow when your Democrat leaders applaud her comments, and any criticism of Maxine by you or the article you posted is necessarily linked to criticism of Trump and Republicans.
